AGU Fall Meeting to encourage the pursuit of Open Science
MIT Joint Program presentations highlight multiple sustainability challenges and solutions

The preeminent conference for the advancement of Earth and space sciences, the AGU (American Geophysical Union) Fall Meeting draws more than 25,000 attendees from over 100 countries each year to share research findings and identify innovative solutions to complex problems. Organized around the theme “Wide. Open. Science.” and affirming “Open Science” values including scientific collaboration, transparency and accessibility, the 2023 AGU Fall Meeting will take place in San Francisco and online on December 11 - 15.

Among those researchers will be 13 co-authors of oral and poster presentations, and conveners of conference sessions, who are core members or faculty affiliates of the MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change. Listed below—links to each abstract, along with the names of Joint Program co-authors or conveners (in bold for lead authors or conveners)—their 23 presentations and sessions span multiple Joint Program research focus areas, including multi-sector dynamics, policy scenarios, infrastructure and investment, Earth systems, and energy transition.

Categorized by primary research focus area, these linked presentations and sessions highlight recent findings by Joint Program researchers and their co-authors on several sustainability challenges and solutions.

Multi-Sector Dynamics

These presentations and sessions investigate potential scenarios, risks and transition states of interconnected Earth and human systems.

Policy Scenarios

These presentations explore environmental and economic change under different climate, air pollution, and economic policies.

Infrastructure and Investment

These presentations focus on adaptation and resilience to climate change and extreme events

Earth Systems

These presentations explore changes and risks to the Earth’s interconnected land, ocean, atmosphere and biosphere systems.

Land and Ocean Systems

Advanced Global Atmospheric Gases Experiment (AGAGE)

Environmental Impacts of Aviation

Energy Transition

This presentation examines one greenhouse gas emissions-reduction strategy consistent with meeting the long-term goal of the Paris Agreement.
